Earlier this month, UK ISP BT claimed that the costs of tackling music piracy would outweigh the revenues being lost by the music industry from file-sharing. Now BPI boss Geoff Taylor has hit back, claiming that BT has been given details of 100,000 illegal file-sharers this year, and has done nothing about it. “It’s shameful for a company like BT to know that a high percentage of the traffic it carries is illegal material but do nothing,” says Taylor. “If you operate a commercial service and know it is being used to break the law, taking steps to ensure it is used legally is a cost of doing business… This is just about BT protecting profits.”
